2017 Tour Itineraries

Music Celebrations International knows that many choirs singing in the festival will want to stay in Europe afterwards to explore and experience some of the many musically and culturally significant towns and cities in the area. MCI is also able to help balanced choirs perform in stand-alone concerts as part of the American Celebration of Music in Europe.

The following are links to the Festival Only Itinerary, plus four examples of possible post-festival extensions to consider. Remember that MCI is more than happy to use these itineraries as a starting point to then create a completely customized tour for you and your choir.
